Isn't it SO rewarding seeing a student rise to the challenge and do so well? My heart swells with pride when I watch a student doing well. And, I cry along with them when things go badly. I feel like their mom many times over,

Congrats on a great show!! What a cute pair. One criticism.....one photo is not near enough!

Thanks so much everyone!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thanks so much! It is rewarding, it's by far my favorite part of my job. I love riding & training horses, but it's so much fun working with little ones especially when they have such grit & determination.

The week got better, she won 3 of her classes on speed events night, reserve showman & reserve horsemanship on western day as well. She ended up being overall high point jr as well as high point pony for the entire week.

As requested, a few more pics (Blurred out face per parents request)

Your student will grow as a real horsewoman, being as versatile as she is. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the additional photos....face blurred and all.

That is completely awesome! Huge congrats to all 3 of you .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
